Ike's moveset is based upon his appearance in Super Smash Bros. and Cloud's moveset from Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
Ike's hostility to Cloud is a reference to Super Smash Bros., where Cloud's introduction trailer featured him and Ike in a scenario similar to the final showdown between Cloud and Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII.
Ike has been a favorite of mine since I first played Super Smash Bros. Brawl. So, I had to bring him over to Dissidia.
I liked how Cloud played in NT, but didn't want to just throw the moveset onto a character I already liked the design of. I eventually came to realize that Ike would be a decent use for Cloud's NT moveset.
